Our Next Meeting
We would love to have you join next Friday at 7 am at the Plaza View Room in the Jacoby Storehouse, on the Arcata Plaza.
RISE Calendar …
“Rotary Involvement Strengthens Everyone“
August 13-19 – Pedal for Polio bike ride to raise awareness and funds to support Rotary’s fight against polio. Participants will ride from Crescent City to Petaluma (or portions of the route). District Governor Bob Rogers is hoping for 100% (financial) participation.
August 27 – Kevin Ebbert Memorial Trail Run in Arcata Community Forest. Sign up at any HealthSport location.
Dustin Brings the R”u”CAS
The 26th RCAS President, Dustin Littlefield, led the first meeting of his year last Friday. In the following video, he tells us the plan for the coming year, including his three areas of focus: Fellowship, Visuality, and Service.
[Editor’s Note: R”u”CAS is pronounced ruckus.]
Sunrisers In Atlanta
President Dustin and several other Sunrisers attended last month’s Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. Terri Clark, Ashliegh Diehl, and others share their experiences.
Check out the video below to learn what Praj White did on his birthday/Father’s Day weekend. We also hear from Lisa Hemphill, and Janice Newman. (Did Janice finish that Birthmonth, or is she extending it to other parts of the calendar?)
The Youth Exchange Report
Judy made it safely to Taiwan (her other home), and Steve McHaney provided some thoughts about her stay in Arcata – which included two stints with his family! Tami Camper then told us how easygoing Judy was, before reminding us that we will soon be greeting Isabella from Austria.
This could get confusing, because our Outbound Student is also named Isabella! (Fortunately, she also goes by Bella.) She will be heading for Denmark soon, and she provided a brief presentation about her soon-to-be host country.
Rachel Mae Damme is our newest Sunriser, but she is very well known at our Club. While a member and Past President of the North Bay Rotaract Club, she found time and boundless energy to help us with our fundraisers and events, and she attended many of RCAS meetings.
We are thrilled to have Rachel as a member of our Club!
